Don’t ya love hearing other people’s stories of how they started their business? It’s fascinating to hear how different people go from ‘zero to hero’ and what lead them to where they are.
Well, in this Podcast episode, I take a walk down memory lane and share my personal journey into entrepreneurship. I open up about how I rejected the teaching career that I – and everyone around me – believed I had to follow, and instead decided to turn my little flower hobby into my career and create a successful wedding floral design business.
Look at these photos of ‘baby’ me! This was me when flowers were a hobby, just before I had the hopeful dream of making a full-time living with flowers.
The ups and downs, a slow first year and some of the mistakes and lessons I learned along the way… I share it all! (well, as much as I could fit in a 40 minute Podcast episode!).
Toward the end of the episode, I also share 5 quick tips to help you take imperfect action in your business, based on my own experience. Because ya girl DEFINITELY had some fears to overcome too!
